Urg, this is such a sweet demo, damn! (Prepare yourself for some gushing which might have some light spoilers and probably inaccurate quotes, since I am writing most of this out of memory)
The art in this game is so, so pretty. I love the design of everything, I feel like hugging everyone! They are so cute! And even though they are cute you still manage to make things scary and gross... It's really awesome! The letters changing to make different lines of dialog appear also helped with the atmosphere and were just plain awesome.
Also - there is so much to interact with! It's wild! I love basically everything about Binder's house (and Binder himself, oops). I mean, the fact that he gives Lore the dog figurine "as long as he gives it the respect it deserves"? And the book pile family? Arg! So great!
And it's not just in Binder's house! The whole "You may have an axe, but this isn't that kind of game" was great! (I may or may not have decided to turn on the stove and automatically regret it, when I realized I couldn't turn it off. I may or may not have also gone to the kitchen to check on it at any given opportunity, and may or may not have been relieved when it was turned off for me.)
I love the scattered socks! I don't really understand them sometimes (why are you in this sink, pile of socks?), but at least they seem to be having a good time (Enjoy your books, sock)!
The puzzles and mini games are also really great. It was fun having to figure out what I had to do in each one, since you didn't make it as obvious as most puzzle games make.
I was a bit confused about the save point, at first I was scared to have Lore write in his name and something bad happen (I might have been a bit traumatized after the stove incident); but I eventually figured it out.
I like that Lore can rest any time you save and the explanations of why he would are really charming (a favorite of mine is "this place is warm and comfy, I'm sure Binder would understand if you took a nap", which yeah, of course. Binder is great. Did I already mention that I love Binder?) and the fact that he always wakes up back in his room is also really nice (I like how there are new items for each part of the game you have already played through).
Anyway, I really, really liked this demo and I am looking forward to the full game. I love every single character I met in this demo, and I am sure the rest is going to be just as great! Keep up the good work!
